Robert Fashimpaur Obituary
Aug. 9, 1928 ~ Aug. 21, 2014
Bob had many interests in his life but he was happiest while working. If he had wanted a gravestone he would have been the rare individual that would have appreciated the inscription on it to read, " I wished I had spent more time at work". Bob's most recent job was 37 years at Sheet Metal Specialties, retiring at age 80. Bob made many friends during his career and they have maintained contact with him until the end. While he also loved his family and his dog Roscoe, his friends held a special place in his heart.
Bob served in the Air Force as an aviation mechanic. He was very proud of his service. After retirement, Bob would continue his work ethic on the weekends doing odd jobs for his neighbors and friends. Bob appreciated a dirty joke, well endowed women, peanut butter, coin collecting, trains and a cold beer.
Bob was preceded in death by his second wife, Dorothy Irene Nielsen Draper Thatcher Fashimpaur. Bob is survived by his first wife, Joann Fashimpaur of Salt lake City, Utah; his children, Kim(Joel Lundstrom ) of Logan, Utah; Kurt of Salt Lake City, Utah; Trent of San Francisco, California; and Kelly(Nate Bush) of Salt Lake City, Utah. Also surviving are his step-children, Craig, Kevin(Wenlyn Walters) and Cory all of Salt Lake City; and Terri(Eric Zenger) of Huntsville, Utah. He leaves behind grandchildren Cassidy, Chance, Tyler, Austin, Zeke, Christopher, Hailey and Tessa.
The family would like to thank all those who showed Dad kindness and compassion. Adrienne and staff at Access Homecare and Hospice, Dr. Stephanie C. Thomas and staff, the staff at Bridgerland Audiology, Dr. Otrusinik and staff, Dr. Abdulla, Carmen at Pablo's Barbershop, Dennis at Medway Medical Equipment and finally, friends and neighbors.
The final box is checked on his bucket list. Dad got his name in the newspaper. Bob asked that there be no funeral. His wishes were to be cremated and placed in a peanut butter jar. Friends and family may want to celebrate his life by drinking a beer, telling a few jokes and eating a peanut butter sandwich. Dad, rest in peace.
